Centerline Most of the spam bot post have come from one IP address and Jon has banned that IP. Obviously we have a new spam bot that has found this thread so we'll have to deal with that one as well.

The big thing to remember here is that these posts aren't being made by an individual. It's an automated process that looks for certain key words and then automatically registers and posts the porn links. Jon has to be careful when banning an IP address because it could effect legitimate members as well. Just keep reporting these posts when they happen and when we have enough information to assure that no legitimate member's IP is associated with the offending one the spam bot's IP will be banned.

Good, Thank you!!!

This forum is getting nailed for some reason. Several of the bogus usernames have the same IP address but others are different. I am not a moderator in this forum so I cannot edit or delete a post.

I completely stripped the car and it is down to the bare fiberglass. However, I used chemical stripper designed for fiberglass and did not damage it. I will be using Acrylic Lacquer for the color.
Any advice will be appreciated.

I would use urethane primer it is a better primer than polyester primer. But one good thing you should know LACQUER is not a good paint use urethane all the way around and yes Im certified for paint by martin senour.

11echo I used DP epoxy primer on my 69 Vette, no problems after 5 yr.s

baddbob The biggest thing reguarding polyester primers is temperature, the surface of your part should be about 70 degrees as well as the air in the room. If the temperatures fall lower than this the curing will be delayed by a great amount. And make sure the primer is well stirred before loading your cup. Featherfill 2G is good stuff IMO. No shrinkage, good sanding, excellent adhesion, and it can be used over any cured 2K component along with etching primers.

Bee4Me I used the G2 in the above post and it is ALOT better than the old Feather Fill.
The original had issues with the hardener having to be EXACT in the mixing or all sorts of problems would come up is the way my rep explained it to me. I have no idea what Evercoat did but the G2 is more forgiving with being "a little off" on the hardener. It's a no brainer anyway with a tube per quart mix,but if your just mixing up a little for spots you gotta pay some attention to how much your dumping in.
As for spraying/finish,It shoots as good as any primer/epoxy finish IMO.

roger1 Another question.

Can someone explain the differences in Evercoat's polyester primers?
(Feather Fill (and the new Feather Fill G2) vs. Slick Sand vs. Final Sand)

Their web site doesn't explain the differences between these.

I have used Feather Filll and know it is very high build but doesn't spray on that smooth. However, the info sheet on the newer Feather Fill G2 product says it sprays on smooth.

Any advice here would be appreciated.

baddbob The epoxy if used as a sealer will act as a solvent barrier and provide added adhesion to the urethane primer but I don't think this thin layer will do very much for added strength in your application. Being that your applying a singlestage color with a very low solvent content and considering how durable the product is I think you'd be best off just applying the paint over your urethane surfacer. Others may disagree with me but I've done it this way many many times and they always held up and looked really well. The color you're spraying should cover really well over any gray or neutral colored primer. For a nice job you could apply two to three coats of color then wetsand with 800 and apply two more flow coats, this way you'll have a smoother end product with a higher as sprayed gloss.

Well, yes and no.
Everyday collision work, agree!
But a rod or restoration where you want the paint as stone chip resistant as possible, its the way to go.
Remember, base will stick to nothing as good as an epoxy (after 7 days) and second the epoxy will make the base more flexible
so it can withstand more of a shock, IE stone chips.
Base is the weakest link.

roger1 (baddbob quoted)

"Z-Chrome is a polyester primer and works really good but you'd get the same results with Evercoats Featherfill, slicksand, or Featherfill 2G if you wanted to go the polyester route. I see nothing wrong with using DPLE as a sealer but there are many sealers to choose from nowadays, you may want to check with your paint rep and discuss your options. If your final sanding is done with a urethane surfacer the sealer really wouldn't be necessary."

Thanks for the advice baddbob. You and Barry seem to be real high on the Evercoat polyester products and that is what I am going to use on my 69 Vette.
If I do my final sanding with Evercoat's Uro-Fill urethane surfacer, is the epoxy sealer wasting time and money? Or, is there still some benefit to it?
Again, I am going to topcoat with PPG single-stage urethane (solid color) and I will color sand and buff.
